Biology will be super broad and will likely cover pretty much everything - animals, microbes, plants, cells, humans, genetics, viruses, ethics, biomedicine etc etc.

Molecular biology - mainly at the cellular and molecular level, looking at DNA, RNA, proteins in model organisms (including plants), biochemical pathways, cancer, other diseases at the small molecule level.

Microbiology - mainly studying the microbial world, microbes found in water/rivers etc, microbes involved in infectious diseases, might stretch to lectures in things such as brewery as microbes can be heavily involved.

Well explained by the poster above. Just to add, genetics will be about gene regulation and the mechanisms involved. There may also be aspects of genetic engineering and epigenetics.
